Anyone see that DRZ on fire on the freeway?

Apparently the rider didn't even know he was melting away until he got home.

Looks like my muffler started melting my turn signal which then looked to blaze away at my plate. It was hot enough that my inspection sticker started melting and peeling back.

Time for some new turn signals.

actually, i need to do some jetting, but its a bit lean at the rpm/throttle position when I am running 70 mph on the freeway.

I've been running it this way for about 1.5 years and never melted away my signal. But I do need to mess around with my needle in the carb a bit. I changed the taper of the needle, but I think I need to make another change, or move the needle around.
